The world's longest musical revival is currently on a hugely successful North American tour, so break out the fish-nets, tap shoes and practice your jazz hands!

Discover this incredible musical phenomenon, based on the critically acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire, which explores the foundation of the Oz legend, of what made Glinda and Elphaba become the icons of good and bad, and whether all is what it appears to be in later stories.
